Ask for God’s Wisdom to Lead Your Family (Morning)
Job 12:13 “With Him are wisdom and strength, He has counsel and understanding.
Naomi is a faithful wife. When Jerusalem was in severe drought, he devoutly following her husband and settled in Moab. After her husband’s sudden departure followed by her two sons. Shen then asked her daughters-in-law to leave her, Oprah obliged but Ruth insisted to remained at her side and returned to her hometown, Jerusalem. After her son’s departure, her task to be their mother is done, but she still fought for Ruth’s happiness. She taught her everything she knew. How to survive being a widow. With her wisdom and helps, Ruth could find her happiness with Boaz.
Our family happiness is something we must fight for. It’s never an easy task, especially for Naomi, a widow, who lost everything. But, she stood up, against all odds and fought for her remaining family, Ruth. For Naomi, Ruth’s happiness is her happiness too. Naomi’s story could tell us: to put our family members’ happiness above ours.
It’s time for us, the housewives, to take this huge responsibility. Ask for His wisdom, strength, and love to fill our hearts. Starting with our family members’ happiness. Do not give up yet instead create an altar in which you and your husband and children could unite as one family. His Kairos is now, and He sees your struggles.
